  • We can think of lots of reasons to visit Ragdoll in Burleigh: delicious food to share, attentive service, white tablecloths for date night, and some of the best cocktails in town at $10 each all day every day (and night)! Their espresso martinis are to die for, and I'm not generally a fan. Cold pressed juices to take away as well  Worth the trip to @ragdolldining Review on website.

  • We're on the road, chasing up great food and wine in Orange NSW. We drove here via the Black Stump and the Golden Highway, with sheep and cattle on the road. (Yes, it's a 2-hour flight but we love a road trip.) Visitor figures to Orange have doubled in the past five years to over 1.2 million annual visitors. Food, wine and four seasons...Have you visited Orange yet?

  • The world flavours of Ipswich and Springfield amazed us. From a Turkish breakfast feast at La Mocha to a banquet at Indian Mehfil, ramen at Hikari and pork knuckle at Heisenberg Haus, it seemed that the world had come to us! Review on website foodgoldcoast.com.au

  • My local, @alkemist_gc , uses Melbourne's Dukes Coffee. There's a separate coffee menu for our pleasure, including cold drip, syphon, aeropress, chemex, take home beans etc... Even the dried flower arrangement on the ceiling looks down in wonder! .
